Ratings: “Quantico” Falls To Series Low, “Secrets And Lies” Holds Steady

Quantico [ABC]

Off for last week’s presidential debate, ABC’s “Quantico” returned with an original installment this week.

From a live+same-day standpoint, the episode was the show’s lowest-rated and least-watched broadcast yet.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s “Quantico” drew a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating and 3.04 million total viewers. The numbers, which are both series lows, trail the 1.0 rating and 3.57 million viewer mark garnered by the previous episode.

ABC led into “Quantico” with “Secrets And Lies,” which drew a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and 3.45 million total viewers. The previous “Secrets” drew the same 0.9 rating but a stronger 3.69 million viewership total.

Earlier in the night, ABC offered “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (0.8, 4.48 million this week vs. 0.9, 4.78 million last week) and “Once Upon A Time” (1.1, 3.48 million this week vs. 1.2, 4.11 million last week).

Since last week’s “AFHV” and “Once Upon A Time” led into ABC’s debate coverage (and thus may have received ratings boosts by association), the week-to-week comparisons are not apples-to-apples.
